Many organizations in Kuwait and around the world see innovation as a key driver of sustained growth and long-term viability. Yet few succeed in incorporating innovating into their day-to-day business practices. Those that succeed understand the critical role managers play in initiating, supporting and implementing new approaches to business problem solving. This in-depth three-day workshop helps prepare managers for their role as catalysts for innovating success. Participants receive a solid grounding in the theory of innovation and the barriers and enablers that can impede or promote success. Through exercises that address participants’ actual business challenges, they acquire practical tools they can apply immediately and use to build highly sought-after skills.
